  1. XZ691 Westland Lynx HAS.2 RNAS Yeovilton 29 JSTU 1980 So, another lynx. This one i am very happy with. Before i talk about the model, lets talk about the real thing. XZ691 was a HAS.2 that got selected to be used in OP BANNER in Northern Ireland. She was stripped of her standard scheme (Blue) and painted in Army/Marine Camo and was put in 29 JSTU (Joint Services Trials Unit) I could only find one picture of her, so anything on the port side could be fiction. Because the picture was taken at an angle, It was somewhat difficult to follow the camo. After pu
  2. Another lynx, this time a Hobbyboss kit. This one will be a normal HAS.2, with a twist that will come apparent in the a couple days. As with all my recent lynx, I have detailed the interior a little bit. I made milliput soundproofing along with some detail to the seats. I kept the Cyclic (No collective in this kit) away from the observers position and tried adding something of a radar screen to the console, and some overhead console. I used some evergreen strips to try and make the door rails a bit larger like the actual lynx, although i could make them a bit thicker. O
  3. XZ585 Westland Seaking HAR.3 RAF Coltishall 202 Sqn 1986 This is my attempt at the old tool Airfix Seaking, and well its a meh. The first issue with this, is that is has a crack on the starboard side, which i couldn't be bothered to do much to it to fix it. I have heard alot of bad about this kit, and If im honest i didn't experience many problems (apart from some odd shapes for the seaking) The worst fitting place was around the inlets but even that wasn't difficult to get rid of. Yellow is a few layers of Tamiya Xf-8 and a couple layers of X-3. Decals hav
  4. XZ725 Westland Lynx HAS.3 HMS Osprey, RNAS Portland 702 NAS 1998 This is a slightly different style of RFI that i haven't done before, but i will try ans keep them like this. This was a very nice project, enjoyed it very much. Not accurate at all but that doesn't bother me in the slightest. I custom made the interior, adding some extra detail such as soundproofing (first time using milliput to do that, i would usually used foil) and adding various bits to the back of the seats. I had to convert the bas kit (HAS.2) into a HAS.3 with ESM. Luckily i ha
  5. I recently did my last WIP post on these, so its time for a final post for these. Both Gazelles are the Airfix offering, one from the 80s and the other from the 90s/00s. The first one i started (back in March) got to the end of the painting stage and it all went a bit wrong when i found out i had completely messed up the canopy. It took me a fair few months to know what i will do with it. I decided to do it in the scheme of XX453 used by Qinetiq in a fictional diorama with it in storage, getting brown paper getting applied to the glass. (The wonky antenna has since bee
  6. Before i started posting on Britmodeller, i was working on a 1/72 Airfix Gazelle, and that project came to a crashing halt as i found that the canopy was cracked and clouded after using tamiya x-thin on it to get it in place. Throughout Lockdown, i was wondering what to do with it, trying to find a replacement canopy, and even a new kit for a gazelle, but fast forward a few months, i was talking to someone that worked on Gazelles and i was told they used brown paper to protect the windows and canopy while they were in storage, i could have decalled it up at that stage and replicat

  8. Westland Lysander Mk.III (SD) (72023) 1:72 Dora Wings The Lysander was developed by Westlands in response to an Air Ministry requirement form and Army Co-operation aircraft in the 1930s. After interviewing pilots it was decided that field of view, low speed handling and a Short Take Off/landing aircraft would be needed. To accomplish this the Lysander would feature a high mounted wing with a large glazed cabin. The wing would feature fully automatic slots and slotted flaps. These would be complemented with a variable incidence tailplane. These would bring the sta

  10. Right lets get into this: I will be basing my build on this Whirlwind XN358 (for more info check out my blogger (look at my about me) Its a reduced weight whirlwind which is kinda snazzy I am using the Airfix HAS.22 kit to do this build, and i am trying to do an interior, which is proving difficult. I have used a food container (one that you buy from the shop with food) instead of plasticard as this kit has no representation of a floor/bulkheads. It is proving very difficult as interior pictures of the whirlwind are hard to find. The textures on th
  11. Hey guys and girls, This is my rendition of Whirlwind HAS.7 ' XN358 '. (With the help of navy Wings i have found a lot of info on her) I used the Airfix HAS.22 for this conversion...not aftermarket parts were used, just scratch built (first conversion) XN350 , built in 1960, served for 771 squadron at HMS Osprey, Portland. She had her ventral fin removed, tail rotor drive shaft cover removed along with wheel brakes and various things from like unneeded avionics. She was used was turned light weight to increase lifting capacity for the ASR role. This test w

  13. Hello everyone... I normally don't venture into civil aircraft to often, but had some questions about Westland Lysander's. Did anyone ever use these as Bush planes post war ? Possibly in Canada, Alaska, Australia, New Zealand, or in Africa ? It seems like the type would have been perfectly suitable for bush flying ? If so does anyone know of any photo's or maybe profiles ? Also does anyone know whether or not they could be mounted on floats ? Dennis
  14. @Ex-FAAWAFU @junglierating @hendie @MarkdipXV711 and any other knowledgeable Rotor-heads I couldn't think of at the time... I came across these pictures of a Sea King HAS.5 (I think) and the sponsons are definitely not your average Westland ones and look very similar to the ones used by the USN on their ASW Sea Kings. Given I have a Revell Sea King in 1/48 then these sponsons could allow me to build a FAA Sea King 'on the cheap'. I'd still have to remove the flare dispenser from the port side ones and find a HAS.5 radome (unless these were used on HAS.2) but the Stbd.
  15. Hopefully I will have time for a second entry in this group build - and it's a kit I picked up for all of £2.50 in the RAF Museum at Cosford's shop last year. For that money I wasn't even expecting it to be complete, but it was, so with my notional savings I splashed out on the Rotor Craft composite rotors for it, and I'll be adding those for this build. I also have some spare Merlin HC3 photoetch, which will probably contribute at least the cockpit seatbelts, and some left-over Sea King HC4 bits (if I decide to do an HC2 the armoured seats might be right? need to check that). I will be build
  16. Hi, Just a quick question on the major external differences between the RN Westland Whirlwind HAR9 and the RAF HAR 10. Did the RN HAR 9 have the under fuselage recess for a torpedo like the earlier HAS 7? I know the RAF HAR 10 did not have this feature. I'm planning to convert the Italeri H-19 into a HAR 9 as used in the Antarctic on HMS Protector. Any help with this question greatly appreciated. Cheers, Joe

  18. Good day everyone, I've been waiting for the start of this GB for like, forever! So am just bookmarking my page. I am going to try for 3 of the blighters, 1st will be a 1:48th Italeri Mk5 version, probably done in the sand/green box version. Next up will be TWO 1:72 Italeri versions one a Mk5 of 771 and the final one a Mk3 version which will be the blue/yellow type (I already have a Falklands Humphrey). The 48th will have an eduard etch, I'm not planning to go all 'Hendie' on it but lets see how deep I get dragged in. The small Mk5 will be OOB with some aftermarket decals and will be a re
  19. Hi all, I was given Airfix's new boxing of the Sea King HAR.3 for Christmas so in an effort to hit the ground running in 2017 I've decided to haul 2 older boxings from the stash and build the three together. My intention is to finish the aircraft as follows: XZ586 Sea King HAR.3, 202 Sqn A Flt., RAF Boulmer (from the new Airfix HAR.3boxing) XZ590 Sea King HAR.3, 202 Sqn A Flt., RAF Boulmer (from the old Airfix HAR.3 boxing) XV699 Sea King HU.5, HMS Gannet SAR Flight (from the Airfix HAR.5 boxing) (modified from the new Airfix HAR.3 boxing using decals & possibly

His transport is the Alvis Salamander crash truck which will take him to the excited children at the Christmas party at the base NAAFI complex. DO ANY OF YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT MODELS THE WESSEX AND THE SALAMANDER ARE ? Cheers, Adey
